Octaves: 5-7 octaves handbells, 4 oct. handchimes, opt. Latin percussion instruments Composer: setting by Leila Norris AGEHR Level: V Description: Infectious Latin rhythms complement the evocative melody
of this familiar piece, first released in the early 1940’s.
With the discerning placement of stopped techniques and
careful orchestration of handbells and handchimes, the
arranger has captured the spirit of Cuban composer
Lecuona’s work. A percussion staff is notated as a basic
recommendation with encouragement to add a variety of
rhythms and instruments suited to the style of the piece.
